Pay by Credit Card

The Superior Court accepts MasterCard and Visa credit cards. Debit cards that have the MasterCard or Visa logo are also accepted, and are processed as a credit card.



In Person: Use your MasterCard or Visa credit or debit card in person at the public counter at either branch.

Over the phone:  You may pay by phone with your MasterCard or Visa as well. Call 707/463-6872 and follow the instructions.

Over the Internet:  We also receive payments through the Internet. Click below to go to our payment processing website. A new browser window will open.



When paying by phone or through the Internet, and asked for your Case Number, enter ONLY the numbers and not the letters.

Click here for an example of what your case number looks like and where to find it.

There is a $8.00 convenience fee automatically added to the amount you enter when paying by credit card, when over the phone or through the Internet. When calculating and entering the amount you pay, do not include this fee yourself.



If you plan to attend traffic school, you must include the $74.00 state-mandated traffic school fee at the same time you pay the fine. Just add this fee to the amount of the fine when you pay.

Traffic school is automatically approved upon payment of this fee, as long as you meet the other conditions described on the Traffic page.

Important: If the traffic school fee is not paid, traffic school is not considered authorized by the court therefore any Certificate of Completion of Traffic School is invalid. The violation will be reported to DMV as a conviction.
